Ideologies have more absurd histories than nation-states.
Many of our modern ideologies began as revolutionary movements, whether in thought or practice. Other nonsense sciences strictly adhere to the political fields of civil society, such as Liberalism, Conservatism or Socialism. Most ideologies will eventually transform their first genius into institutional murder.
Feminism was a good belief system. Women have been just as intelligent as men. Surely, they could not do a few physical labors, but women’s degree of intelligence has always remained on par with male intelligence. In my life, I have met women who were great historians. How many women’s lives fell into sad deaths as countless historical societies denied them access to humanity’s intellectual arts?
Most women do want marriage, children and a great family, but there are also other women that have wanted a family and the life of the intellectual. Too many past historical cultures have prohibited women from entering those realms, or they have tried to hinder women’s access to possessing both the rights to family planning and to the intellectual life.
Throughout history, many women have worked in the public spaces. Most families had to rely on their women for economic survival. Whether it was selling extra foods and handicrafts at a local market, maintaining the household industries and organization, or aiding in the collection of agricultural harvests.
Every single historical culture that used women as simple property, like cattle, furniture, lands, slaves and precious objects, eventually rotted from the inside out. You cannot make a culture strong when one part of society constrains the other half to slavery. A historical cataclysm invariably ensues.
Feminism has successfully given women access to higher education, intellectual jobs, and a special attainment to the rights of reproductive health access, such as contraceptives and abortion. Unfortunately, contemporary Feminism has also grown within certain world cultural regions, and it especially proliferated inside the Anglo-American cultural world, such as Britain, the United States, and Canada.
Within this cultural world there has also existed another religious ideology, which had seized significant power during the mid-seventeenth-century, in New England, or the American Colonial Plantations. Puritanism was the name of this particular ideology, and it was an offshoot of Calvinist Christianity. This ideology supported both good and bad practices.
Puritanism encouraged literacy for the total population, church membership as an important societal position, (for both men and women), higher education for clergy, Biblical exegesis, the study of languages, especially ancient Greek and Latin, the hard work ethic, gentlemanly public decorum, modesty in dress, and bravery with endurance in military conflicts. The old American ideal of the farmer-public reader-writer-soldier and gentleman came out of the Puritan inheritance.
Like other ideologies, it also included some nastier parts. Puritanism practiced heavy intolerance, such as shunning, expulsions, imprisonment and legal murder, against many dissidents. Puritanism also looked at the human body as a type of evil pit of perdition. Even normal bodily functions, such as defecation, urination, sexual arousal and bowel movements carried the stains of vileness.
Puritanism often looked at the world in black and white perspective. Papists, (Catholics), Libertines, Witches, Quakers and Natives were of the Devil seed, while their own messianic cause and civilization were close to a New Jerusalem, or a City on a Hill. Any fanciful clothing or wearing a robe in privacy displayed the wicked sins of sloth and luxury. The Puritans were not a peaceful people. We all know the story of the Salem Witch Killings – but how many people know about the Puritan’s war of extermination against the Narragansett Nation?
Unfortunately, some factions of contemporary Anglo-American Feminism have embraced this distasteful worldview. How did this strange alliance happen?
In the United States of the 1980s, a peculiar political alliance took place. The American corporate news media loved it though. Certain radical feminists began to attend anti-pornography and anti-sex worker meetings – with Evangelical Christian Fundamentalist groups! Yes, these absurd talks took place. Feminists with Marxist backgrounds and having sympathies with Gender Outlaw views shared the same platforms with Christian religious extremists who were often Feminism’s worst enemies! Did not Paul in his New Testament letters demand that women keep silence in the churches?
What did these two seemingly opposite groups share in common? According to those particular Feminists and hardcore Christians, all pornography and erotica victimized women, and all women sex workers were actually sex slaves to evil men. The women who enjoyed sex work were just a bunch of manipulated dupes. None of these so-called sexuality experts asked any of the women directors, artists or writers about their erotica-pornography work, nor did these sexual puritans offer any voices to the ‘imprisoned’ women sex workers concerning their own views on the matter.
Those Feminists would pay a heavy price for this sinister alliance with their worst and most venal political enemies. During this same decade in the US, some of those Evangelical Christian churches would join a Roman Catholic inspired, Populist Fascist Social Movement, or the Anti-Abortion Movement, which would mute some of the important gains of the Feminist movement from the 1970s.
Anglo-American Neo-Puritan Feminism had birthed. The Amerikan Empire of Sociopaths then began to amalgamate this ideology within its own vomit of ideological hodgepodge, including Psychobabble, Militarism, Police State Immunity and Neo-Fascism.
This US Empire loves this ideology because it foments both spreading fear and social control. Men are afraid of having their lives destroyed through receiving the labels of stalker, predator, pervert, or sex offender. All it takes is one simple accusation and, any man, no matter what his social class position, can lose his complete and entire life. In the irony of ironies, this ideology does not usually punish the thug, male brutes; but instead, it more often targets the more sensitive, shy and intelligent men that are actually the natural allies of Feminism.
Neo Puritan Feminism is an ideology that has latched on to the Judeo-Christian repression of the human body, inclusive of human sexuality, in order to humiliate and destroy both men and sexually active women. This ideology also persecutes any woman who dares to live her life as she pleases, meaning any woman who happens to choose sex work as her career.
Most ominously, this repressive belief system punishes millions of young and single woman who do want marriage. Now many good men are rightfully fearful of approaching most women, or even smiling at them, in the fear of receiving the denunciation of a stalker or predator, thereby destroying their young lives. According to the modern inquisitors who manage this doctrine of oppression, all those targeted men and women need imprisonment in the psychobabble-quack gulag or ‘must undergo physical imprisonment and rehabilitation.’
This putrid ideology has attached itself to its most fervid political enemies, all in order to destroy ‘the evil man,’ and the ‘sexually perverse female.’ Christian Fascism does work in murdering people – without actually destroying their physical bodies.
Similar to the old Christians, who exterminated the religious pluralism of the Roman Empire, such as Neo-Platonism and Gnosticism, around 1,500 years ago, this sickening monster of ideological pollution has also putrefied the good ideology of Feminism.
Feminism in the 1970s was pro-sexuality and celebrated all of our human bodies’ fulfillment into their sexual liberation, such as women, men, straight, gay and transgender.
Were the Neo Puritan Feminists actually Christian double agents hiding in the movement in order to destroy it? We still don’t know the sordid details – but whatever those nefarious activists represented, they successfully hijacked the Feminist movement and transformed an honorable emancipation project into another brick in the wall of the Amerikan Empire of Sociopaths.
This ideology now disseminates entirely within the same rotten institutional spaces of our most cherished enemies: the State, Corporations, Non-Governmental Agencies, (NGO Spy agency-lites), the Entertainment Industry and Academic Institutions.
In the Amerikan Empire, all applicants wanting good paying jobs have to sign Orwellian sexual harassment clauses, loyalty oaths, and diversity statements within their 50 page work contracts. Any accusation from a ‘victim’ implies guilty as charged.
When I was a doctoral student-worker at a western land grant university, I saw first hand what happened to the victims of outright lies and slander. The poor men, and a few women, had to defend their lives and honor, using their own meager saved capital through heavy attorney fees.
The Amerikan university administrator hacks always supported the supposed ‘victims’ against the ‘evil ones.’ Some of the courageous fighters survived the monstrous attacks – while others did not, or had to bow out of the fight forever. We can all thank Anglo-American Neo-Puritan Feminism for this current state of legal fear and calumny.
But there is one absurd gift that this decomposing ideology has given to Anarchy. Our political enemies, and especially the Amerikan Empire of Sociopaths, has completely integrated this ideological pandemic into its operating system, within its very mother board. Like its cousin epidemics, psychobabble, police state terror, mass imprisonment and state mandatory education, this ideology destroys any and all community ties, complete solidarity, and any moral unity of purpose, all of which are essential to successful military action. This ideology now decomposes inside the US military-industrial-spy complex.
Yes, our enemies have lots of nuclear weapons, guns and bombs – but without any moral purpose, and where fear, sedition and treason rule supreme – this empire will rot from the inside out. Anglo-American Neo-Puritan Feminism functions through repression of the normal body, mental paranoia and public terror. Like all pervert ideologies, this excrescence will ultimately spew out its own fecal vomit for all the onlookers to see.
